The Black Crowes have shared “Waitin’ Guilty,” a previously unreleased track that will appear on the 30th anniversary of their debut, Shake Your Money Maker. Hear it below.
The expanded version of the album will be released on February 26 through UMe/American in 4LP and 3CD Super Deluxe versions. “Waitin’ Guilty” is one of 10 unreleased tracks, B-sides, demos and alternate versions featured as bonus tracks on the reissue. The expanded album also includes a complete live show recorded in Atlanta in 1990.
These versions of the album also include reproductions of an early Mr. Crowe’s Garden show flyer, setlist, and tour laminate; a 4″ Crowes patch; and a 20-page book with liner notes by David Fricke.
A 2CD version of the reissue will also be released, featuring the original remastered album and the bonus disc of B-sides and rarities. Brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, who co-founded The Black Crowes, oversaw the Shake Your Money Maker reissue along with the album’s producer, George Drakoulias.
The Black Crowes previously shared two other bonus tracks from the reissue, “Charming Mess” and their cover of John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy.”
The Black Crowes originally released Shake Your Money Maker in 1990, and it became a massive success for the band, selling over 5 million copies and topping Rolling Stone’s “Best New American Band” readers poll.
The album also launched five hit singles for the band, including “Jealous Again,” “She Talks to Angels,” “Twice As Hard” and their cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” which was their highest-charting single from the album, reaching number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number one on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.
